Amon Amarth, "Father of the Wolf"
Amon Amarth have an awesome Best of live album in them. Their records are always good, often great (especially 2006's With Oden on Our Side), but they're best experienced in the flesh, with filler-free setlists and best of all, the most smashing Viking metal flair you'll ever see. "Father of the Wolf", my pick for Father's Day 2015, is a great example of their power--a cinematic, riff-heavy death metal fest with a singable chorus. Raise your index and pinky before your hand turns into a paw.
